Installing the mapr-client Package

The mapr-client package must be installed on each node where you will be building and running your applications. This package installs all of the MapR Libraries needed for application development regardless of programming language or type of MapR-DB table (binary or JSON).

Note: The package mapr-core contains the files that are in the mapr-client package. If you have installed the mapr-core package, you do not need to install the mapr-client package.
Complete the following steps to install the mapr-client package from a repository:
  1. Configure the repository to point to http://package.mapr.com/releases/<release version>/<operating system>
    For example, if your VM has a CentOS operating system, edit the /etc/yum.repos.d/mapr-core.repo file and add the location.
  2. Based on your operating system, run one of the following commands to install the package:
    • On Red Hat /Centos: yum install mapr-client
    • On Ubuntu: apt-get install mapr-client
    • On SUSE: zypper install mapr-client
